About Us

The National Club was founded in 1874 and is one of the leading business and social clubs in Toronto, Canada. A designated historic site, the current clubhouse was built in 1907 and combines a warm and elegant heritage charm with a contemporary, modern aesthetic of today. Attracting leaders from sectors such as banking, insurance, marketing, law, finance, and the ever-growing technology sector, The National Club maintains a strong and diverse membership that is representative of the business world today. With unparalleled service and staff, members are treated to world-class events and experiences, exquisite fine dining and a home-away-from-home in the heart of the city.

An array of exciting and dynamic events allows members the opportunity to network within the business community, or contribute to philanthropic endeavours, like The National Club’s Annual Giving Back event that has since raised over $1,000,000 for local charities. Members also have access to the Wine Club, which features a 40,000-bottle wine cellar and exclusive winemaker events.

A new and ambitious strategic plan developed by The National Club’s forward-thinking board will bring the club through to its 150th anniversary in 2024. Cognizant of an evolving membership, phase one of this plan has seen the completion of a brand-new grill and tap room, a state-of-the-art business centre, and modern and attractive overnight accommodations completed at the end of 2017 to appeal to a wide variety of resident, non-resident, overseas and affiliate members alike.

This renovation comes only four years after the club unveiled a gorgeous Rooftop Patio and Lounge in 2013, maintaining the only outdoor rooftop dining area on Bay Street as an indulgent escape from the concrete jungle. In 2014, The National Club received the Canadian Society of Club Managers Club of the Year Award for its community involvement, exceptional success and contribution to CSCM and has been honoured with the distinguished Platinum Club of the World designation since 2019. 

At the corner of Bay and Adelaide, The National Club sits conveniently in the heart of Toronto's busy downtown business district, with direct underground connection to the Scotia Plaza concourse level, the subway, and all major downtown office towers via The PATH. Maps are readily available for your guests.
